Hurricanes are fickle fellows. Just when you think you know what they’re going to do, they up and change plans. While the folks south of DFW are getting washed out thanks to Imelda, it appears that the forecast for today is going to be sprinkles here and there. And now the weather teams are downgrading their original guess of 60% chance of showers to 40 t0 50% for tomorrow.
But Harvest Co-Chairs Lisa and Marvin Singleton aren’t taking any chances. Lisa just sent word that the North Texas Food Bank fundraiser at the Dallas Arboretum is still on… only with the slightest change of location, but it won’t affect your GPS one iota. Here’s Lisa’s note:
This Friday’s Harvest, benefiting the North Texas Food Bank, will be a fabulous night, come rain or shine. Thankfully having it at the Dallas Arboretum allows us to have the entire event including the food stations and silent auction at Rosine Hall with its covered terrace. And valets will be at the ready with umbrellas in hand for attendees as they arrive.
For those anxious to get a head start, bidding is now open for the amazing silent auction, featuring items such as a one night stay at the Ritz-Carlton, Dallas with breakfast and a Fearings gift card, a twelve-course tasting menu with wine pairings for eight at Fauna, inside Flora Street Café or the ultimate Dallas sports package. Visit ntfb.org/harvest for more.
We look forward to what promises to be a wonderful evening of delicious food, cocktails and tunes by DJ Lucy Wrubel.”
The partying starts at 7 p.m. The stellar grazing will be provided at food stations including City Hall Bistro, Le Bilboquet, Empire Baking Company, Mozzarella Company, Pop Star, Haute Sweets Patisserie, Savor, Tulum, Up On Knox, Rosewood Ranches, Parigi, The Henry, Home Grown Market, San Martin Bakery and The Mansion Restaurant.
Tickets are still available here!
